31395 What if the other side of the moon faced the Earth rather than the one with he Lunar seas? I think this would raise the question of "how did it form/evolve that way?"   A popular idea is that the far side of the Moon is much more cratered than the near side because the Earth shields...

31186 Lets say you have a planet that is like Earth. But it's a moon orbiting around a larger gas or ice giant. How would this affect plant life on the near and far sides, how would they be different from one another? Or if you have a planet with multiple moons, would that affect plant life? Could ...

Can someone make a procedural solar system that is reversed, with the gas giants first, then the terrestrial planets?

Quick Question about Realism

Does it really make sense to have massive moons and ice giants in orbit of a gas giant so close together like in solar systems? In my mind they should usually be smaller and further apart.

The question is, which of these situations would you prefer to live in? Blue or red. Blue or red pill, if you will. I think the best stellar classes for habitable planets are G and K. I can't tell which one of those is the best. The Sun releases a fairly high amount of UV radiation and, if wasn't f...

What would a reverse solar system look like? With the Gas giants being in the places of the inner planets and vice versa?

31181 If we had an Earth around a hotter sun in a habitable, say an F, A, or O star, would we get sunburn easier? Yes, we very probably would, for just the same reasons.  The hotter the star, the larger the fraction of its light that comes through UV, so even if we kept the total amount of sunlight...

Science and Astronomy Questions

I see. That's very interesting! Quite useful for worldbuilding purposes as I feared that planets around hotter stars in habitable zones would also be brighter, and thus an unpleasant place to live. Even the hottest stars, maybe 0 type stars would still have the same apparent brightness as our sun bu...

If you had an Earth around a hotter star and it's in the habitable zone, will the star be the same (similar apparent brightness in the sky as the sun or not?

So I have a roleplay character, that has the following addictions. I believe that her body would build up an immunity to these addictions, or would it lead to a premature death? Would this addiction get rid of her sense of smell and effect her nervous system? I believe it would, but I'm curious to s...

Pretty much what I think it would look like, maybe a bit more of a brighter white. Don't know about the ocean.

A very PC discussion

I had an old computer laying around with 16 gigs of ram. I was able to transfer that ram into my current computer because that computer has issues and it's sort of outdated, though at least the ram is better than having 8 gigs of ram. I've noticed a definite improvement in my computer's speed. It's ...

I do not have any photographic equipment as I just took these pictures of the moon with my phone camera. https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/489531596542836746/601861018770997261/ZaBUl8O.png https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/489531596542836746/601859747368665098/H9khgTU.png?width=873&...
